Visiting Vinohaven, ME

A little catching up….

I recently ventured off to the East Coast to visit Josef & Sue on their little island of Vinalhaven, ME.  I’ve made annual trips to the island over the past few years and it’s always a holiday I look forward to!  Great Friends, excellent food, and of course corkscrews!  Since Josef has already told the story, I will let my photos to the writing today…


LOVE this restaurant in Portland, ME.!  DUCKFAT!!

I found the corkscrew case!!  Let the picking begin!  hehe


Hmmmm…  That was mine… That was mine… I think I sold that to him… I remember that trade… I have that one, that one, that one, wish I had that one.  Never saw that one.  Mental note on that one!  Want that one.  Want that one.  And that one.  AND THAT ONE.  Don’t leave with out that one!

Damn!  Shouldn’t have traded that one…


Absolutely AMAZING to see so many FRARY Corkscrews at once!  And they are all different!


After combing through the lower drawers and skimming through the junk box, I’ve made a pile!  Eeeeeeeeeeee!

After a lovely meal at Nibo, we all ventured beyond our comfort zones and ordered up the Black Pepper Ice Cream.  We all thought it was interesting and a successful dish.  Not our cup of tea, but had fun trying it!

Brunch at Salt!  Their interpretation of the “Tommy Burger” – Short ribs stuffed burger on a brioche bun with fried egg.  Yummy!

Josef – “Is Tommy hiding a corkscrew in his sock…?”
